EMR Australia offers Australian residents the option to hire various meters. The following terms and conditions apply to meter hire:
Hire period is for seven days from the date on which the equipment is received. It is deemed to be received when it reaches the address or post office box of the hirer. EMR Australia PL inspects equipment for condition before sending it to the hirer and packages it carefully for transportation by post.
The hirer agrees to take good care of the equipment during the hire period and not to allow the equipment to be used by anyone outside his or her immediate family. The hirer agrees to return the equipment on or before the required date or to pay the necessary late fee. Late fees are calculated at $10 a day for one meter; $20 a day for 2 meters and $25 a day for 3 meters. These fees may be billed directly to the hirer’s credit card. If the hirer fails to return the meter(s) within one month, he or she will be charged for the full cost of the meter(s) and a $20 administration fee.
The hirer agrees to return the equipment to EMR Australia PL in good condition. If equipment is returned in a damaged state, EMR Australia PL has the right to charge the hirer for the replacement cost of the equipment. The hirer further agrees to return the meters carefully packaged for transportation by the postage method indicated in the kit. Should the hired equipment hired require repair during the hire period, the hirer agrees to contact EMR Australia PL and not to undertake any repairs him- or herself. EMR Australia PL will organise the repair or replacement of the equipment.
The hirer may return DE2 filters included in the deTekta hire package if they are in as-new condition, suitable for resale. If the DE2 filters or their packaging are damaged in any way, the hirer agrees to pay the purchase price for the filter(s).
EMR Australia PL’s meters may have some degree of inaccuracy and are intended to provide guidance of exposure levels. They are not to be used for medical, legal, certification or similar purposes.
The hirer accepts complete responsibility for any injury or loss resulting from the use of the equipment and agrees to indemnity EMR Australia against all claims relating to such injury or loss.
The PF5 [Power Frequency 5] meter is a unique and versatile meter suitable for measuring fields from electrical sources. The advantage it has over many other meters designed for this purpose is that it measures both:
Whereas most magnetic field meters measure fields in the ELF (extremely low frequency) range of the electromagnetic spectrum, the PF5 also measures fields from the VLF (very low frequency) range of the spectrum. This enables it to measure fields from:
Identifying fields in the VLF part of the spectrum is important because these frequencies can produce much greater currents in the body.
The PF5 meter is easy to operate and to read.
